Notes & Reviews:

This DVD is only the third filmed performance featuring Tennstedt with the BSO to be made available to the public and represents some of the earliest concert footage with this great conductor. Tennstedt has been compared with Barbirolli, Furtwängler, Karajan and Klemperer by the Gramophone Classical Music Guide, while BBC Music Magazine described ICA Classics' recent DVD release featuring Tennstedt directing the LPO in Mahler 5 as 'epitomizing the combination of immensely detailed precision and overwhelming expressive intensity that Tennstedt's many admirers found so special'. Tennstedt and the BSO formed a close association, together covering much of the Austro-German symphonic tradition, such as the works included on this DVD, which are described by Michael McManus as a 'classic Tennstedt program'. Tennstedt was well known for the depth and animation of his concert performances, to which his studio recordings seldom compare - this DVD provides a rare opportunity to witness the great man in action.

Fanfare Magazine, September/October 2012
If you are a fan of Tennstedt, you cannot be without this DVD. If you want to see and hear what was so wonderful about Tennstedt, this is also the place to start. This man, like a handful of conductors before him, was one in a thousand. We shall not see his like again.
